Computer Aided Design of Suspension Mechanisms

Automobile suspension mechanisms have to date been designed using two-dimensional graphic oriented methods. Computer-aided design has allowed many two-dimensional mechanisms to be designed much more accurately. However, this has not translated to suspension mechanisms because these mechanisms are not two-dimensional but instead three-dimensional.

Adapt or Die: Making the Case for Resilient PLM

With business shifting at an unprecedented pace, the PLM system deployed to meet today’s business requirements is likely not equipped to meet tomorrow’s. Instead of locking companies into yesterday’s “best practices,” a PLM platform architected for resiliency can easily adapt to changing business requirements while giving companies the ability to upgrade to the next software version and infrastructure enhancements with minimal disruption and without a significant burden on end users or IT.

What is Wiring Synthesis?

Wiring synthesis is a transformative technology for vehicle wiring design. Using principles of Model Driven Systems Engineering (MDSE), wiring synthesis automatically generates detailed vehicle wiring design data from simpler, higher level inputs. Totally different from traditional wire routing, wiring synthesis addresses key domain problems such as high frequency design change, arduous configuration management, design quality and verification, and development cost and cycle time. Supported by ten years of software development, major automotive OEMs and suppliers in Europe, USA and Asia have now applied wiring synthesis technology with great success. As electrical complexity continues to grow, wiring synthesis will become the only practical way to design automotive electrical systems.

Optimizing Automotive Wiring Designs Using Engineering Design Automation

Currently, most methods for optimizing an Electrical Distribution System employ unsophisticated and manual spreadsheet tools. Any detailed feedback on critical metrics such as cost or weight typically relies on another organization and requires weeks or months. The resulting EDS is inevitably sub-optimized, not due to a lack of engineering ability, but rather the tools available. To ensure that the EDS design is optimized from the outset, the design environment itself must be enhanced. This paper will discuss the four key requirements for an EDA system along with the flow implications using examples from the Mentor Graphics Capital suite.

Technology To Speed Wire Harness New Product Introduction

The speed with which wire harness makers can bring new or changed designs into production is a key business differentiator. Up until now, the complex sequence of tasks necessary to accomplish such a feat was poorly supported by COTS software. A robust COTS solution from Mentor Graphics is now available. This paper focuses on a set of manufacturing disciplines and describes key “building blocks” which underpin Mentor’s robust software solution for harness wire manufacturers. The Mentor approach protects company IP, reduces manufacturing engineering costs, improves process quality, and provides early and accurate visibility of gross margins. More importantly, it removes critical path bottlenecks to new product introduction.
